a lot of defects are known. there is cause and effect with everything. -- a lot note -- of effects are known. we have to manage them in a different way. right now, that is what happens. they are holding these above- ground in challenging the residents and causing problems. commissioner moran: how can we best protect ourselves?
what is the problem now. is it a collection system proof is in a creek that is causing a problem? what is the nature of the problem, and then we are looking to identify solutions, and say, this neighborhood is going to be further challenged if we of climate change and look at different levels of intensity, but our plan to manage this is looking at a more intense basis and look at all of the tools in our toolbox, gray, green, everything. one solution. commissioner: we have had this
discussion, so why is a 1.3, and what if we did 1.5 q or there, and the response that i was getting is that the whole system is designed for 1.3. going in and putting in small portions of your upgrading to a, a different size storm does not do any good because the rest is not accommodating. in some cases, it would probably cause trouble because there was a larger capacity and i think it may be in some ways, not to get somebody crazy, but building a new bicycle lane on the bay bridge. it russia off on treasure island, and you cannot get here. it may be a good idea long term note, but until then, -- is
i changed my question. if we knew what it was going to be, if this was the same situation, then we would have a fixed objective, and it seems reasonable but only minimally so, and an optimizing it would make a great deal of sense. i am less comfortable with that. rather than me tell and you what the answer is, what would you suggest to the commission is a way of dealing with up risk that seems likely, and i do not expect an answer of the top of your head. >> we may see it -- seek an exception.
trouble? >> thank you. >> oh that is a combination of actions we need to do >> can we pick and go to item number nine? providing benefits to communities. if we can go to 9, karen? >> i thought you're going to item 9. thank you. >> we were confused about going to item nine on the agenda. >> so, commissioner mioran, transitioning to climate change.
this will really affect the infrastructure and how we consider it to be to address the challenges all of the things that we were just looking at. haute commissioner moran: i am fine with this, but on the issue of climate change, you are really dealing with sea level. >> so the question would be whether or not we should include intensity here.
the last one, actually, the second to last one is using methane generated. and there may be of a more cost- effective methods, and will be analyzing that. we want to get started rather quickly. certainly, installing solar where we can. we will get more methane production. we are looking at producing on- site towers for a waste water enterprise needs.
we want to minimize our risks. and this is not to love a big site impact. all of them fall into the category as being projects, because across the board, we see these trying to reuse biosolids, capture stormwater. we're trying to incorporate what we're talking about locally, so we build the biosolids facility, and we will be looking to make sure we are not using potable water. all of them will be evaluated based on the bottom line.
commissioner crowley: ok, we are looking for a check on that one. colleagues? got aj >> the next one is actually the one -- >> maybe while we are wasting to discuss the item, given the earlier discussion about storm water and rainfall intensity, it might make sense to look get the resolution we are going to be asking you to adopt a the end of all this and see if you would like to amend that. the resolve talks about you endorse the level of service with the caveat, and i asked the
city attorney to work on that. there may be two possibilities. one is how they manage the effects in the future. we could also put something in provided implementation reflects uncertainties regarding future storm intensity or some words to that affect, so we can give you a chance to mull over that period -- over that. it might make sense to think about that. >> why don't we take public comment?
maybe you can continue going back to that one point. let's go back to the item on public benefit. >> we are heading back to the beginning of section 8, and i have extra pages. >> thank you. this is a community benefit the provides benefits to impacted communities, and that is the one area of a check.
the first level of service was within the treatment facility. strategy is to contain process orders carrier -- orders. that would include a facility of course. this implements visual improvements, including low impact designs, which would be improving the work of neighborhoods by putting in screening, and one thing we have discussed when they were here giving the testimony -
